In my first three years teaching, I had the opportunity to teach grades 7-12. I am finally settled in now, teaching the best 8th graders around!
I like to have a very hands on, student led classroom. I'm always interested in new teaching strategies and I'm willing to try any technique once.
I'm a member of Pi Lambda Theta.
I've got a B.A. with a double major in English and Women's Studies. I also just graduated with an M.Ed. in Secondary Education and have stared working on an M.A. in English.
I'm obsessed with all things Louisa May Alcott, Harry Potter, and thrifting. I live with my sweet husband and my crazy pup Doxy and his sister dog Vera. I love spending time exploring stores and interacting with other teachers.
